George Floyd was a 46 year old man. George was a dad of two daughters, a basketball star and coach, someone who loved hugs and was referrered to as both "gentle giant" and "a man of peace." George moved to Minnesota a few years prior to start a new life.

May 25th George was murdered by police officcer Derek Chauvin.

George was arrested because he was suspected of forgery. He tried to pay with a $20 dollar bill, but the store employee identified it as counterfeit. (George was innocent)
Police officers tried to say that George physically resisted when asked to get out of his car, which was later proven to be false information. They put him in handcuffs and put him face down against the ground. Derek then kneeled down on George's neck and stayed there for 8 minutes and 46 seconds. Almost 3 minutes out of that time, George was unresponsive. George was not protesting or fighting at all, only pleading with the cop saying "I can't breathe" several times and calling out for his mama. George was later pronounced dead at the hospital.

The next day all four officers were fired. It's been confirmed that not only were the other day officers (Tou Thao, Thomas Lane and J. Alexander Kueng) watching it all happen with no protest, they were also kneeling down on George. Derek Chauvin has been charged with third degree murder and manslaughter. Third degree murder basically means that it was a mistake. Now that's obviously a lie and the evidence is super clear in the video. Derek killed a man in 2006 and another one in 2011. He's had 17 complaints filed against him over the years and all but one went without discipline.

Derek and George worked together for 17 years.

Police came out and said George already had underlying health issues with his heart and there was no sign of strangulation, basically blaming his diseases for his death. But no. George died because a man knelt on his carotid artery for almost 9 minutes and he was ignored when he said he couldn't breathe. Period.

We live in a cruel, twisted and evil world where this isn't uncommon. But it needs to be, we need to change.

Racism is NEVER okay. Racism is NEVER harmless. Racism is NEVER unproblematic. I don't care who you are, it's never okay to make a racist joke, feed into stereotypes or say the N word. I am fully convinced that all these "high and mighty" white people are terrified of black people. Because they know how insanely powerful black people are. And what they do have? Guns and privilege. That's it.

Innocent people are getting killed because of cruel murderers who can't love past their own race. The colour of our skin doesn't define us. We're all the same, we're all people, we all bleed red. I can't put into words how heartbroken and angry I am. To every single POC, I am so sorry. You don't deserve any of this, you don't deserve to live in fear. I'm not black but I see you, hear you, mourn with you, support you and I will ALWAYS fight for AND stand with you. Equally doesn't mean less for white people, it literally just means we're equal and all have the same rights and privilege. It's not enough to be not racist, we need to be anti racist.

floyd, black lives matter, and say their names image
Say his name. Say THEIR names. George definetly isn't the first this has happened to and we demand justice for them all.

Now before I finish this, I need you all to listen close. You need to be extremely careful. The government have no mercy, they're arresting minors at protests, showing up at peoples houses to arrest them because of things they have tweeted and they're looking into your DM's to see if you're going to a riot. PLEASE take care of yourself and look into what it takes to be safe.

This is a safe place and every single one of you can always message me. If you have questions, need to talk or just want a friend. Now please go spread the message! Use the hashtags #BlackLivesMatter, #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd and #RaiseTheDegree. Espescially the last one as we all know it wasn't an accident! And sign. And say their names. Aslo if there's more I can do as a white european, please message me and let me know! ♡
